The Mysterious Stranded Boxcar

The stranded Milwaukee Road boxcar outside the Chas. Levy Recirculating facility on the left in the background. The photo dates from the late 1980s. The spur where the boxcar sits has been cut off from the rest of the tracks on Goose Island by recent repaving of the street. On the right is the interesting Druth Packaging building where you can still see evidence of the spur in the asphalt street surface.
